What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Comic Issues

Technically, bakeries have to get permission from the copyright holders to use certain logos in their cake designs. But really, who has the time or energy for that?

Besides, why use this...

 

...when it's essentially just a red "S" on a yellow triangle anyway?

Totally the same, AND free for anyone to use.

 

Come to think of it, you really don't even need that triangle; a yellow background still gets the idea across, right?

A "super" cake, for a, er, "great" man!

 

It's interesting to see the lengths bakeries will go to to avoid using a licensed Batman kit, too:

This one could fool just about any lawyer: a playing card and a friendly Halloween bat? Nope, no Batman stuff here!

 

Plus, this could be just your average creepy clown cake:

A very "serioust" clown, that is.

 

Here's my favorite, though:

"Now, Pat, we've got to make sure that 'Bat' and 'Man' are two separate words, okay? And obviously no bats."

"Nooo problem, boss. How do you feel about seagulls?"

 

Jessica T., Eddie, Jill M., Aileen M., & Maria, "super" job! Oh and happy Batman Day, everyone!

Princess Show & Sell

The princesses are back for National Princess Week, eager to show you their new castle!

[Original penis castle cake removed at baker's request. Please enjoy this other penis castle cake.]

You know what they say: "One princess' doorbell is another man's ding-dong."

 

Hey! Snow White! HANDS OFF!

Thank you.

 

They also want to show off their finger painting:

 

And their... crown?

Let's go with crown.

 

And whatever this thing is:

(I'm guessing "royal spider smasher.")

 

Hey, ever seen a reeeeally long hairball?

Ew.
Thanks, Rapunzel.

 

Some of them even got new dresses!

I guess that's one way to be the ball of the Belle.

 

Of course, not all princesses are DISNEY princesses.

In fact, may I be frank?

Awesome.

 

So just remember, ladies: you're never too old...

...to be a priscess.

 

Thanks to Anony M., Wendy, Kimberly C., Stephanie H., Vanessa C., Carissa B., Marjorie R., Stephanie H., & Heather for that priceless priscess.
